This Dodger Stadium Dog Adoption Fair Is a Fido-Fun First – NBC Los Angeles

What there is to know

  • Saturday July 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Dodgers Center Field Plaza
  • $51 adult dog adoptions, $75 puppies, licenses not included

A catchy statement of “playing ball” is something we often hear when visiting a baseball stadium, and for understandable reason: fans are at the park to see America’s favorite pastime in all his mittens and bats, slipping through the house, glory of grass and chalk.

But “playing ball” can have more canine connotations when we have a squeaky toy in one hand and our pup’s leash in the other. We could go out and toss our dog’s toy over and over and over again, all so he could get some fresh air, play and exercise.

Sometimes, however, the two versions of “playing ball” can cross paths delightfully, especially when a dog adoption takes place at a famous location associated with baseball.

And that’s set to happen on Saturday, July 30, when LA Animal Services hosts its first-ever dog adoption at Dodger Stadium.

The place? Everything is woofing at the Dodgers Center Field Plaza, and a host of iconic athletes will stop by to meet fans and show their support for animal rescue.

You can “(m)meet the greats of Dodger, Orel Hershiser, Jaime Jarrin and Jorge Jarrin” during your visit, and also say “hello” to “‘Lucky Dog’ host and expert animal trainer Brandon McMillan, who won three Emmy Awards, who will be on hand to offer simple and effective advice on dog training,” the department shared.

Lucy Pet Foods is the department’s partner for the four-hour Find-Fidos-forever-homes event.

As for adoption fees? It’s $51 for a dog and $75 for a puppy, but keep in mind that those numbers don’t include licenses.

There are a few other things to know before you go. Only cash and checks will be accepted, and adopters will need to show “valid government ID” (more on this page).

The Dodgers will be away that day, playing the Colorado Rockies, so your visit to the stadium will be mostly about getting to know the pups and meeting some of the special guests who will be featured.

Shelters are always full of dogs when summer hits its peak, and people who can open their homes to a dog’s happiness are encouraged to stop by at rescue events and adoption fairs just around the corner. in case your next best friend is waiting for you there.
